Surrounded by the Ouachita National Forest, Lake Ouachita is known for its scenic natural beauty and the clarity of its waters. These pristine waters form the largest manmade lake within Arkansas's borders. Named one of the cleanest lakes in America, 40,000-acre Lake Ouachita is a water sports mecca for swimming, skiing, scuba diving, boating and fishing. Angling for bream, crappie, catfish, stripers and largemouth bass can be enjoyed in open waters or quiet coves along the lake's 975 miles of shoreline.
Located just a short drive from the spa city of Hot Springs on the lake's eastern shore, Lake Ouachita State Park is your gateway to this popular water sports lake.
The park features historic Three Sisters' Springs. Fully-equipped cabins include seven that overlook the lake and one that offers a woods view. Park campgrounds feature 103 campsites (40 Class AAA, 25 Class B, 24 Class D, and 12 Hike-in Tent sites).
Other park facilities include picnic areas; trails; a swimming area and marina with boat rentals, bait and supplies. The park visitor center includes exhibits and a store.
